Yoga, yoga, yoga! Restorative Yoga with Stefanie Haberman and a book recommendation

I did 200 hours of yoga teacher training back in 2015-2016 at Bhakti Barn and never became a yoga instructor. It wasn't a total folly, however, because I became  very attached to my  teacher training "mentor," Stefanie Haberman, and now take  gentle yoga with her every week. Stefanie is soothing, funny and beautiful. She is also very smart: She used to edit the Barnes & Noble website and always has good books to recommend. This Sunday, she is teaching a two-hour restorative yoga workshop from 1-3 p.m. at the newly opened and renovated Bhakti Barn in Millburn. Her restorative workshop is like taking a ten-day vacation, except it only takes two hours and costs $45. Stefanie uses props, oils and gentle words to help you relax and maybe even nap. For more information, check out and @stefhaberman.

Stefanie's recent book recommendation is The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin, available here and here.
